3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is beautiful and has a unique archaeological decor, matching the main attraction of the temple ruins practically across the street. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, especially considering that we spoke very little Spanish. In addition the pool is gorgeous and the food incredible.

The hotel location is great right next to pyramids and easy walk to both San Andres and San Pedro Cholula. Hotel food is good. Awesome Sunday brunch. Setting is beautiful - garden surrounding pool. Only drawback is bed in first room was too hard as bed was set on cement slab but hotel moved us to a room with better bed at no extra charge.

It is clean, colorful, mexican colors, good food in the beautiful small town of Cholula.

Its a very nice hotel in the middle of Cholula and next to the pyramid. The room is not that big but they are nice. They don't believe in AC so don't expect one! What can I say about the bed?... OMG! hard as a rock! The staff is very friendly. I would stay here again since the price of the room is not as expensive as some of the other hotels in the area

This hotel is located close to the Great Pyramid of Cholula, we walked there once or twice a day. It is also located close to the center of town and shopping, all within a mile. The walk was a little dusty but we found no need to rent a car or use a taxi. The Hotel staff was excellent. The food was some of the best we had. The ossobusco was fantastic as was the cheviche de pescado. Would definitely stay there again. The trip by taxi from the airport to the hotel was 230 pesos, about $20.00.

The staff were wonderful. When the woman changing the room sheets noticed I was working at an outside table (in a very beautiful alcove), she took the initiative to move a beautiful desk and chair into my room so I could work in my room. Everybody was helpful. The hotel is so close to the zócalo (plaza) and cathedral that I was almost inside the cathedral grounds! The furniture is exquisite, and this was the most comfortable bed I have ever had in Mexico. Lots of towels, pillows, etc. It is a gorgeous building (I guess it used to be the Italian consulate.) I highly recommend this hotel on every account.

We loved the hotel, excellent service, excellent food, Great location, and the room was great!!! What we hated is that our room was just in front the pool restaurant and we had the unfortune to hear a bunch of women having a baby shower. Like 40-50 women screaming and talking loud just in front of our room!!! It was very annoying!!!!!

Nice hotel. Old but clean. Great restaurant. Only problem: rooms don't have air conditioned or fans, only a heater; if you go in summer, room can become VERY hot even in a cool night. I stayed in room 229 mid May 2009; the whole area was very hot. Stay away from it. I don't know if it's the same heat in other rooms on a different orientation. Would I return to this hotel? YES.

This was a very good hotel, the staff was friendly enough to make you feel comfortable (not taht they made a HUGE effort or anything...) anyway this hotel is in cholula which is quite far from Puebla. If you dont have a car you may pay A LOT for taxis to and from PUEBLA, but if you are looking for a relaxing trip, this hotel is a very nice choice. It has a VERY GOOD restaurant, really you can eat very good stuff, from classic mexican cuisine to international food, without having to leave. The hotel does not have room service after 10:30 so keep that in mind!!!
